A child’s bedroom serves many purposes - nursery, playroom, study - but most importantly a space of their own, where they find most comfort at the end of a long day. As they grow older, the room must transform and grow with them. No matter what their age, a child’s bedroom plays a significant role in housing his/her imagination, independence, creativity, whims and fancies.
It speaks a lot about their likes, dislikes, personality and way of life. The different stages in a child’s life suggest a constant change in the room’s decor and appearance. A 5-year-old's room would not appear the same as a teenager’s, however, it is equally important to decorate both appropriately.
We love to surround ourselves with things we like and that inspire us. Similarly, the interior decor of a child’s room, should give your child the space and freedom to choose what their room should look like. If you’re just warming up to the idea of decorating or re-decorating your child’s bedroom, then here’s a quick edit of decor ideas that can help you get started.
Start with the major chunk - Walls are among the first few things you encounter as you enter a room. Take this opportunity to build a theme for the room. Stick to neutrals as it acts as a blank canvas for painting your imagination. Pick one wall that could feature a bright color, print, decal or wallpaper - this sets the tone of the decor and adds overall personality to the room. Choose lead free and safe paints for your child’s room.
Try incorporating modern and functional furniture in your kids room that do not take up too much space. Make sure you choose space-saving beds and dressers in complementary colors that grow with your child and their requirements to ensure longevity. Kids need their space to thrive! Another tip is to always have furniture with soft edges and splinter resistant.
This is where you use your creativity and imagination to its full potential. Use unique furnishing elements such as bed linen, blankets, pillows, cushions, rugs and curtains to add a sense of coziness and texture to the room. Use prints and colors that inspire your kids and captivate their attention but are not too busy. Try picking 100% breathable and organic fabrics.
A great way to bring visual interest to the room is by making the most of open spaces. You want the room to appear roomy and decluttered along with a sense of personality. Use photographs, wall art, plants, lamps, fixtures, pin boards, storage bins or even a swing to bring your child closer to feeling comfortable and self-sufficient in his/her room.
